Step 1

In a large bowl, combine the soy sauce, sugar, sesame seeds, garlic, vinegar, oil, black pepper, scallions, onions and soda, and stir to combine. In a small bowl, use a fork and mash the kiwis until they become a paste. Add the kiwis to the marinade and stir to combine. Pour the marinade over the short ribs. Cover and marinate for 4 hours.
Preheat a charcoal grill or grill pan over high heat.
Remove the ribs from the marinade and drain off any excess. Grill the ribs until slightly charred on each side, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Serve on a platter garnished with chopped scallions. Serve with cooked rice.

The kiwis in the marinade help to break down the short ribs, tenderizing them in less time than without using them.
